Workshop

Baking bread: from grain to Roman bread

How was grain processed 2000 years ago to make bread?

Students learn step by step how to bake bread as it would have been done during the Roman period: they grind the grain on a Roman stone mill as a group. Kneading the dough and shaping the bread is then up to each student’s own creativity. The breads are then all placed in a reconstructed wood-burning oven and each student can take home his or her bread while it is still warm and deliciously fragrant.
